? cheney says it's vital to national security that good folks hold positions like secretary of state, cia director, and secretary of defense. we can all be on board with that. first off, none of the president's nominees are second rate. we don't need to point out why everyone on the wall is qualified to serve as the president's national security team. meanwhile, let's look at a few bush/cheney dandies from their cabinets there is secretary of defense donald rumsfeld. we can't forget him, can we? he botched the wars in afghanistan and iraq. he ignored critical advice from colleagues and failed to commit the correct number of troops to get the job done for those wars. bush appointed condoleezza rice his national security adviser. well, condi lied about weapons of mass destruction in iraq and played a key role in starting the war. as a reward, bush later promoted her to secretary of state. then there is fema director, how could we ever forget brownie? of course bush told brownie he was doing a heck of a job responding to hurricane katrina. but now brownie is famous for one of the biggest gov
brennan, the choice for c.i.a. director. graham demanded more information on the u.s. consulate attack in benghazi, libya. today, white house, spokesman jay carney rejected any delay. >> what is unfortunate here is the continuing attempt to politicize an issue -- in this case through nominees that themselves had nothing to do with bengs ay and to do so so in a way that does harm to our national security interest. senator hagel, mr. brennan, they need to be confirmed. they're highly qualified candidates for their posts. >> sreenivasan: any effort to hold up the hagel and brennan nominations would wait until they reach the floor of the senate. former u.s. army staff sergeant clinton romesha received the nation's highest military decoration this afternoon, the medal of honor. on october 3, 2009, in northeastern afghanistan, he and 50 other americans were attacked by 300 taliban fighters at combat outpost keating. he led a desperate day-long battle despite being wounded, and killed at least ten insurgents himself. at the white house today, president obama said romesha risked his life to re

and brennan, defense and cia, just in the last week their performance in front of the committees that have to be determined is pretty poor. you look at what the president's desire for picking chuck hagel, i think he wants a republican to go and be the foil, if you will, for what he wants to do in the defense department, which is either do serious, serious damage to our military capabilities. >> wheel party elders and gop senators raise contain on the sidelines, hagel may have his mind on more important matters. namely, the announcement of a third underground nuclear test in north korea this morning, a development that would constitute an actual concern for any future secretary of defense. any other piece on the ridiculousness of the hagel haggle as we called it, and the hill today given what's happening on the international stage. we're talking about filibustering a cabinet which has never been done before would seem to be a misuse of one's time in the senate. >> particularly when you consider that over the weekend -- this is just sunday -- lindsey graham said that no confirmation of that
the attention then will move to john brennan to be the cia director. we have the hearings last week and roughed up by a couple of senators. overall i'm struck by the volume of outrage of congress which is sort of, you know, to date, left out of this entire decision make process about drones and sort of the, you know, talking -- getting any information about what's happened after the drones go out and kill people. are you surprised, jonathan, by the lack of sort of, you know, audible outrage from congress over this? >> i think you've got two things at work. one is that the republicans largely agree with the president's targeted killing program, that is to say drone strikes and other ways of killing top targeted terrorists on a very individual basis. and you've got most democrats either agree with the policy or willing to give president of their own party a lot of leash on it and hearing the very far left and far right with concerns and then occasionally some of the folks in the middle expressing concerns and probably not the type of concerns to lead them to stop the president from having the def
doing here? there are various -- the u.s. military and the c.i.a. have used these drones to kill scores of high-level terrorist leaders. but there is a huge downside. it is the innocent civilians that are killed and now, it is a questionable use of them against people who are american citizens and the claim by the executive branch that they can do this. execute an american without any semblance of due process. >> bill: and justify it by saying well, we couldn't capture -- it would be difficult or impossible to capture them. and that they're an imminent threat. when you look in the paper as to what constitutes an imminent threat, it is not really an imminent threat. sometime in the future they might be a threat. pretty scary stuff. >> there is definitely constitutional issues here and whether -- just because this person is in yemen, we can kill them. if they were in the bronx can we kill them? what's the difference there? and also the blowback issue. many, many people believe that the drone attacks in pakistan have enraged the pakistani population against the united states. >> bill: some

than expected and deliver it to a target. now the cia, pentagon, all has to look at this to determine what they set off and essentially now work backward. if it was a miniaturized bomb, what did it take north korea to get there? where did they get the technology, the engineering, the expertise, the money to do it? they will look at what it would have taken north korea to achieve what they say they achieved and try to figure out how they did it and who might have helped them. zoraida. >> has theyou say there. there has been of skepticism in where this program is right now. >> the u.s. has been skeptical for years. in december, they successfully launched a long-range ballistic missile, now a successful underground nuclear test. so they are achieving some level of expertise in their technology, and engineering. and that is vital if they are getting the help potentially and we don't know from iran, from pakistan. these are key issues. there might be people in those countries helping them, and is north korea then sharing what it knows? it's expertise now, back with countries like iran? >>
